A placard congratulating the launch of the space shuttle Discovery is being hung at the shuttle launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. However, it appears that U.S. citizens will have to wait two more months to see the launch of Discovery. NASA announced on April 29 that it would postpone the launch from May to July for a fuel tank inspection. NASA administrator Michael Griffin said in a press conference on April 29, “It’ll take some more time to prevent the hazardous parts from breaking off in the event of the launch, so we decided to put off the launch of Discovery until July”
